stalls. then trouble starting

Hey all, I have a 1990 6 cylinder automatic. Been running great. No issues at all. But recently, 2 times in two weeks, I have been driving and it just sits down like its out of gas. It's had a half tank or more both times. I have to wait a few minutes... poor gas in the carb and it fires up. Any idea what is causing this?

When was the last time you replaced your fuel filter?

I had a similar issue with my 03 TJ, changed out the TPS and it cleared right up. If your 90 has the throtte position sensor you might look at that.
